Blackbones  

Undead

Casts the spell Dark Resistance.

This spell will stun and make you walk backwards until it wears off. Having your back against a wall does not help, as it is not a normal knockback, and will make you glide across the zone wall, backwards.

Other than this, the encounter is straight forward.

Thru repeated tries to 3 box this fight, I found out that if you have your healers at the max range they will not be affect by his knock back.
Find the spot where your healer can still cast on you and every time he knock you back, just run back to that spot and start healing.
I 3 boxed it with a 87th lvl Sk, Clr, and Shm, only with some tier 3 items. My Sk only has about 6k ac and 52k hp
Crazy.

This guy is crazy.

Casts the spell Dark Resistance. It stuns you and makes you walk backwards really fast. My resists were 650 and it has a -650 resist adjustment, basically making it very difficult, if not impossible, to resist.

The only thing I found that would prevent it from landing is enchanter AA stasis. But then you can't move until it wears off.

Finished this quest last night. Blackbones has a knockback that also prevents you running back for a period of time. (15 seconds or so)

Make sure to turn off run, dismount the horses and clear all the mobs in the area prior approaching the portal. Bring backup healing in case you can't get back in time for the tank.

The knockback occurred twice both near the beginning of the fight.

Aside from the knockback, the fight is pretty straightforward.
